At first when I listen to the original audio I can only hear "laurel" and don't understand why my colleagues can hear "yanny".

Then I just simply changed the pitch, from 70% to 160% comparing to original one, and strange thing happens.

When the pitch raising, I heard "laurel" in the beginning, but turned into "yanny" at around 120%~130%.

when the pitch reducing, I can hear from "yanny" to "laurel" at about 120%.

It's really interesting.

Can't wait to ask my colleagues if they can hear "laurel" now :)
